The anthem is to be the official worldwide anthem for the festival. Other top DJs and artists who lead the world dance music scene, such as Afrojack and Kyogo, have provided the anthem in the past to define the next generation. But this year the title has gone to Yasutaka Nakata, making him the first Japanese DJ to provide the official worldwide anthem for the world’s premier electronic music festival.

“Love Don’t Lie” will also feature on the upcoming “ULTRA JAPAN 2017” official compilation album which includes huge hits from a diverse line-up of artists, including the award winning American DJ duo The Chainsmokers who are huge beat makers in the US; Kygo, the famous Norwegian DJ who is credited as one of the main artists to popularise the tropical house genre which took the world by storm last year; and the hugely popular Steve Aoki who has ranked in the top 5 of Forbes magazine three years in a row as one of the “World’s Highest Paid DJs.” Pre-orders for the album are already available, so be sure to check it out.

Last year’s ULTRA JAPAN saw a whopping 120,000 people attend. The festival will return this year and be held across three days from September 16th to September 18th. The world’s top artist and DJs will be taking to the stage once more to amaze the crowd, including Yasutaka Nakata. For more details, see the official ULTRA JAPAN website.
